Is anyone else tired of having to hear people whine about iOS 6?

    This forum has turned into a circlejerk of people whining about every little thing about iOS (it's supposed to be the other way around :confused:). It's starting to drive me crazy. There can't be a post about anything iOS related without people whinging about maps, or skeuomorphism, or a particular color they don't like for an icon. We get it--people don't like maps--can we please stop talking about it now?

    I joined this forum to have constructive conversations with like-minded people and it is slowly becoming annoying to even read the comments. Or is it just me?

    I'm not sure if posting about how you joined to talk to like minded people, and then complaining that nobody is like minded is really the way to fix your issues.

    Inevitable post pointing out the logic flaw was inevitable. I am curious just if I am the only one that is annoyed by this.

    I can see how it'd be a little irritating. At the end of the day, they're just phones. If you don't like iOS, use Windows Phone. If you don't like Windows Phone, use Android. If you don't like Android, give Meego a go. If you don't like Meego, get a flip phone.

    Yes, iOS has its issues. But no more than any other phone or tablet. And there's certainly no reason to nitpick over things like skeuomorphism and icon colors... Jony Ive is here to fix that stuff anyway. Sit tight.

    Been like that for a while IMO. Everything is just bitching - first at Apple, then at each other.

    This is one of the reasons i've stopped posting unless i have an actual problem with my phone. I don't like getting in arguments about stupid things that don't really matter and we have no control over.

    Example would be that is iOS getting stale thread. I wanted to jump in badly yesterday but didn't because its not constructive in my opinion.

    Also i'll be switching to Android on my next phone most likely (99% sure i'm switching) but i keep reading because i like to see people complain and i eventually want to see what iOS 7 looks like, which will be available before my upgrade if past schedules hold the same this year.

    Doesn't bother me at all. I have a rule. I don't let strangers on the internet influence my mood. When I start to become frustrated or irritated, I just walk away. No point getting upset at a complete stranger over something that ultimately doesn't really matter.

    What makes you think that?

    "Talk about the latest iOS" - it doesn't say it has to be "positive".

    The tendency to whining and complaining may be taken as the surest sign symptom of little souls and inferior intellects.

    You started a thread to complain about everyone else who is complaining.

    As you mentioned, there are plenty of legitimate problems that people are having with iOS 6. If not here, among peers who have similar experiences and who could (hopefully) offer a solution, then where should people complain?

    If you have no problem with (or don't care to join in with the discussion of) the maps, design choices, or lack of features of iOS 6, feel free to skip over those threads.

    I don't have any problem with iOS 6 but some new features would be great. An example would be an useful lock screen on my iPad. Either way I agree that it needs a face lift. But hey if people complain and have some proof to back it up let them complain.

    There is nothing wrong with critisizing... It's part of discussing in a forum. Best solution for you would be to simply ignore them. And by critisizing, sometimes they mean to find a solution around it.

    iOS then
    iOS now

    Apple needs to innovate more in their mobile OS. It's good, but it's no longer the best due to too many restrictions and over simplicity. I jumped ship to the Note 2 and like it WAY better not just the hardware but Android is way more versatile, has better multitasking and notifications, and is overall more interesting and useful.

    Do you not understand the difference between complaining and problem solving? One fixes stuff the other is the new normal on Macrumors ;)


    Liked it then..... Like it now, enjoy your Note :cool: new is interesting but not intrinsically better.

    Are you actually just outright trolling or what?

    I think people actually have some pretty good arguments against iOS 6.

    I've had the iPhone since just 'iPhone'. Earlier this year I tried switching to Windows Phone. Didn't last more than a week, I jumped back to iPhone.
    Then a few months after that I tried moving to Android, got a Galaxy S3...loved it, just it didn't feel right.

    Turned out that for me....iOS is the best, even with it's many flaws and annoyances.

    No. Apple has shown that it can innovate in its hardware designs from iPhone 4 to iPad. Always making it sleeker, slimmer, lighter, etc.

    What Apple hasn't shown is innovation in its software sector.

    Ah, so saying Apple is not the best is "trolling" now. Gotcha.

    I haven't heard much complaining about iOS 6 Apple Maps ever since Google released their iOS 6 compatible maps application -- so this thread confuses me, since the thread was created today.


    Can you elaborate?

    Bitching about iOS in a thread about how every thread turns into a bitchfest about iOS, however, is.

    The reason people say that IMO is because MacRumors seems to be more and more anti Apple all the time. Just about any story on the home page probably has more negative than positive comments. Lots of FUD and D&G these days.
